Laura Jean Bourke (Jeanne) Jeanne slipped away from us on the morning of November 9, 2014 after a noble battle with breast cancer. She was 73, but she would always tell you she was really 29. We will miss the brightness of her presence, sparkling laughter, enduring strength, and tender, loving heart. May her glow live on in every soul she touched. No words on a page can truly capture her grace and beauty. She joins her beloved son, Richard Michael Bourke; mother, and father, Rachael Ann and John Derwood Webb, who preceded her in leaving this world and now are celebrating with her in Heaven. She is survived by her loving fiancé, Pete Hand; her daughter, Amy Anderson Perez and grandsons, James Xavier and John David; her son, Dr. Erik Albert Anderson; his wife, Lisa Marie Colby and grandsons, Owen Colby and Luke Thomas; her sister, Sally Rehfeldt; brothers, Woody and Joe Webb; and countless cherished friends. A Funeral Service will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, November 15, 2014 at EAST LAWN PALMS MORTUARY in Tucson. In lieu of flowers the family requests making a donation to the University of Arizona Foundation/UA Cancer Center, 1515 N. Campbell Ave., P.O. Box 245013, Tucson, AZ, 85724, or to Arimborgo Family Ministries at
